I have the nasty habit of buying all of my games post-release. It’s probably the cynic in me, quietly judging and mumbling ‘so you just spent sixty bucks on that new computer games when they could have gone for groceries? Good job.’ But with Fractured Space, I’m actually quite glad I shelled out the money for a pre-purchase, although today it’s moved into the free-to-play territory. Developed by Edge Case Games and released back in 2014, its a 5v5 tactical combat game with some emphasis on teamwork. But instead of some nerd with a bow or some lady with a foxes tail you’re in command of a interstellar battleship that’s 1,215 miles long with a crew of 5,335 brave souls armed with a front facing cannon capable of cracking large asteroids in half. This isn’t any little rinky-dink fighter, you’re in charge of a capital ship that makes The Enterprise from Star Trek look pathetic in comparison. You’re squaring off against five other ships, all equally armed and dangerous out for your blood. You pick the ship, build the crew, upgrade the weapons, and then duke it out on a battlefield powered by Unreal Engine 4. Isn’t that just the coolest?
